Adjustable Beaded Bracelet by Kathy Zee  - featured on Jewelry Making Journal

Adjustable beaded bracelet with lobster clasp and dangles

I am starting to make some bracelets for my fall and Christmas shows.

This is one of the newest ones I made.

It has a ‘opal’ Swarovski faceted pendant in the center with glass beads, metal spacers and a chain on the end.

Length is 7 1/2″ but it is adjustable to 8 1/2″ inches depending on where you hook the stainless steel lobster clasp.

I like using stainless steel as it does not tarnish and is lead and nickel free.

  • Kathy, my first impression of this bracelet was the magic glowing light coming from the “opal” Swarovski focal. And using a variety of bead shapes and spacers makes your bracelet even more interesting, along with that intriguing focal bead.

  • Dawn Carpino says:

    Another beautiful piece!

  • Kathy Zee says:

    Rena, I love how you wrote about the magic glowing light of the focal piece. I am going to write that in the description in my store as I just love how you ‘see’ it. It does have a glow and I love Swarovski focals. They do have a magic. Thanks for giving us all a forum for showing our work.

  • Kathy Zee says:

    Thanks Dawn. I am so glad you like my jewelry. I enjoy making jewelry so much and a portion of my profit is donated to several dog rescues in my area.

  • Lynda says:

    Love the mix of dark and light beads in this bracelet… Designing them to be adjustable makes it all the more easy for customers to snap these up for gifts!

  • Kathy, I’m so glad the “magic” resonates with you! And I’m always thrilled to see what you and our other jewelry artist friends are making. So much interesting and inspiring jewelry creations!

  • Claudia Kellenberger says:

    Kathy, this really is a beautiful bracelet. Good Job ! I also feel that the Opalite, or Swarovski Opal looks magical. It has a glowing, spiritual effect to me …. or magical. Is it appropriate of me to ask how much you would charge for this piece at a show ? If you don’t want to answer that – it is OK. I was just curious. Thanks for sharing your design with us.

  • Pavia says:

    Hi. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creation. Would you please share where you purchased the unique spacer beads? Thank you.

  • Kathy Zee says:

    Hi Claudia, I am sure I under-priced it but I have it in my ZeeBlings by Kathy Zee store on Etsy for only $30.00. I have another one in there for $35.

  • Really beautiful work!

  • Kathy Zee says:

    Lynda, so glad you like it. Coming from you, I am very humbled as I am such a fan of your jewelry! I love putting different colors, shades together. I think that’s the fun of designing. I appreciate your insights.
